Showers overnight and this morning delivered about a half inch of rain to the Sacramento region.
The rain caused spinouts on the freeway and puddles to form on surface streets where drains clogged with leaves. Rain fell on ground already sodden from last week's deluge.
Rainfall totals as of 6 a.m.: .51 of an inch in Sacramento, .27 in Elk Grove, .59 in Rancho Cordova, .67 in Fair Oaks, .55 in Rio Linda, .75 at Folsom Lake and .75 in Loomis.
The warm storm is not as strong as those over the weekend, according to the National Weather Service. Look for clearing skies on Thursday.

Here are some rules of the road:
Keep your comments civil. Don't insult one another or the subjects of our articles. If you think a comment violates our guidelines click the "Report Abuse" link to notify the moderators. Responding to the comment will only encourage bad behavior.
Don't use profanities, vulgarities or hate speech. This is a general interest news site. Sometimes, there are children present. Don't say anything in a way you wouldn't want your own child to hear.
Do not attack other users; focus your comments on issues, not individuals.
Stay on topic. Only post comments relevant to the article at hand.
Do not copy and paste outside material into the comment box.
Don't repeat the same comment over and over. We heard you the first time.
Do not use the commenting system for advertising. That's spam and it isn't allowed.
Don't use all capital letters. That's akin to yelling and not appreciated by the audience.
Don't flag other users' comments just because you don't agree with their point of view. Please only flag comments that violate these guidelines.
You should also know that The Sacramento Bee does not screen comments before they are posted.

You also may notify us via email at email@example.com. Note the headline on which the comment is made and tell us the profile name of the user who made the comment.
